YouTube has some videos you really should look at. A 7-month old baby hears his mother’s voice for the first time after being having hearing aids fitted. His smile is enough to bring you tears of joy.
You can find lots of videos like this online. You feel like you’re part of that wonderful moment that the child is sharing with their doctors and parents.
In some videos, the baby is reluctant at first. When the doctor tries to put the hearing aids in the baby’s ears, they initially resist. They may cry before they smile with joy. They are overtaken by a wide range of emotions. They don’t know what to expect. But in the end, with revived hearing, the world suddenly opens up for them.
They glow with happiness, but that life-changing moment can happen to anyone.
Does the idea of using hearing aids make you apprehensive? Many people feel like this too. People of every age can be a bit anxious about this.
Let’s explore how individuals of all ages might cry tears of joy when they wear their hearing aid.
Music to Your Ears
You might not even recognize the problem. It developed so gradually. You don’t listen to music nowadays. It just didn’t seem as enjoyable anymore. At times, it was even grating. It got even worse when you cranked up the volume.
Hearing impairment doesn’t just effect the volume you can hear. It impacts how you hear different frequencies and notes.
Music is, as every musician knows, a beautiful blend of sound frequencies that blend together to produce the sound that we hear as…., well, music. it just isn’t the same if you can’t hear the subtle complexity of the music.
But put your hearing aid on. All of a sudden you can hear those once silent tones. Music again comes alive. It becomes a wonderful pleasure in your life that you’d lost.
A Child’s Laughter
Do you recall the sound of a child’s laughter? If you’ve been reluctant to use your hearing aid, you may have forgotten how amazing this experience can be.
Restore your hearing with hearing aids and rediscover those wonderful moments with your grandchildren.
Where Did All The Birds go?
Have you forgotten that lots of birds live in your backyard? There are hundreds if you walk in the park. You never knew how much you enjoyed their chirps until they were gone.
But the birds aren’t gone. You just don’t hear these beautiful melodies that so enhance your life.
But when you put in your hearing aids those beautiful sounds of nature return to enhance your life once again.
Neglected hearing impairment can put significant stress on relationships. It can cause a tremendous amount of frustration. They misunderstand. They tend to argue more. Frequently, so they don’t feel like a burden, people with hearing loss will go into seclusion.
They often feel alone and disconnected from other’s conversations causing them to refrain from going out to dinner or other social activities.
Have you quit hobbies because they aren’t as satisfying?
The basic act of getting your hearing back will breathe new life into your relationships with people you love, siblings, children, and friends.
Learn to speak with each other again. Talk for hours. Get back to doing the things you enjoy and being with people you love.
If you miss this in your life, it’s time to reconsider that hearing aid.
Assurance That You’re Safe in Your House
Does what you can’t hear make you feel anxious? If a loved one was injured and calling for help in a different, would you hear them? Would you hear the doorbell, timer on the oven, or smoke alarm? Would you miss an important call because you didn’t hear it ring?
What about oncoming traffic when you stroll around the neighborhood, or a bicycle bell, or a pedestrian signal? Are you confident that you can hear these essential signals?
These “what ifs” can make us feel vulnerable in places where we should feel completely secure.
But when you wear your hearing aid, you can be more relaxed, and enjoy life to its utmost. You’ll be more at peace.
